Many thanks to all those of you who come along and support our activities.

We currently have ‘unlimited’ space at the Church Hall, and all members of Radlett U3A are welcome to our meetings, whether actually a ‘member’ of our group, or not. There is no need to contact us in advance. You don't need to be a member of the music group to attend. (£2 at the door.)

Any Radlett U3A member is welcome to attend. Visitors from other local U3As are also welcome.

We do not confine ourselves to classical music.

Have you ever noticed:

  • a cello asking a clarinet to dance (Weber's Invitation to the Dance)?!
  • or a band of women inviting men to a drinking party only to massacre them after the men fell asleep, to avenge one woman's hurt at being jilted by her lover (Smetana's Sarka in Ma Vlast)?!
  • or that the 4 woodwind chords at beginning of Mendelssohn's Midsummer nights dream represented the 'square of magic'?!
